    Default DenArnold still around

    All,
    I have been of the grid for some time, mainly updating FB.
    Some of you will have seen I had some great time this year in Italy on a motorbike trip and in Sweden with the Family.

    It was like I was enjoying life too much as in August I was informed my job after 22.5 years at British Telecom came to an end in September.
    Despite it loomed to be happening, stil was quite a surprise when both my Dutch manager and HR manager showed up at my desk to inform me.
    Nevertheless I immediately started looking and used my professionan network to apply for jobs.
    After several interviews and sleepless nights, I was contacted to come to work for a Fiber Company EUROFIBER Belgium to manage their network services team....

    I'm glad I was able to find a new challenging job in such a short timeframe and was not forced to stop any motorcycling.
    Still at the motorbike scene, and enjoying the FZ1 and Tiger800 as much as when I bought them, but not as often anymore (less holidays)

    Anyways, life is still good on me and I'm still around

    I enjoy all the photos you post on your trips Arnold. Oh, and the boys are getting so big now!!! I wonder if any or both are showing an interest in two wheels yet??

    I too have been MIA since moving to Texas. Life here has changed (all for the good) but we are getting out of street riding altogether. We bought property to build a retirement home and the bikes are all being traded for ATVs soon.

    Glad to hear that you've rebounded quickly and are continuing to ride. I've followed your journey with the family on FB and the amazing places you've all got to experience so thanks for allowing us to live vicariously through you! I cannot believe how big the twins are already. Seems like is was only months ago when you posted newborn shots. Time slips by far too fast!

    Keep the rubber side down and the shiny side up!

    wow, life goes tremendously fast...also on this side of the world (and yes the local law have spotted me once again….life goes fast)
    Feel a weet bit ashamed (not) for not having read up on all you guys and girls stories last months….good to see/read you are all still alive and kicking and burning rubber...

    Work is busy, private life has it's ups and downs, my daughter moved out to live on her own with her boyfriend (so proud of her), my son finished school and is now getting ready for his first job.
    We bought him a car (which had to be adapted due to him having limited strength in arms and legs (myopthie) and he's signed up for a 6 month formation course to specialize in data processing.
    Youngest boys are now in their third primary school (soon 8y) and doing good….

    What does a father has to wish for more, right....?

    Love reading and seeing all pics and stories on FB (I remain a fan of Billy's stories and ride outs :-) )

    Greetz to all

    And best of luck and speedy recovery to Michelle R

    Glad that all is still going well with you and the family Arnold. Yes, time slips away quickly so we have to make the best of things now. I'll be out this weekend so stay tuned!
